have a fiscal and monetary problem here in the united states. what will solve the problem right now? so far the fed doesn't seem to be able to create so many jobs right now. >> what bernanke said last week and i agree with him and the evidence points in this direction is the main reason we have an 9.1% unemployment is because of weak demand. if you're thinking about monetary or fiscal policy, on the fiscal side, it comes from tax cutting, spending increases, or both, and we have to worry about that. on the monetary side, what monetary authorities can do is reduce interest rates and try to reduce rates across a broad set of assets through qe policies. the fiscal and monetary side are trying to stimulate demand, and demand is missing to great stronger momentum. >> they're pushing on a string, rant they? >> the fed has the capability to act right now, and i think always, you know, again chairman ber knack key admitted that this policy tool is not a particularly strong tool. >> ben bernanke said that he creating two million jobs. they did analysis and said if not for what we had done, there
renaissance. we're gaining market share here in the united states and the riots in china over the weekend support our notion that in the future do you want to put manufacturing facilities overseas or in the united states? this weekend is why you want to put them in the united states. >> peter, tell me what the market right now is saying to you. it would seem to me that since bernanke came out a week or so ago with the announcement of qe3 that the market has kind of moved back a little bit. we've had a few sort of down days as though the market were saying, he gave us what we expected and now it's time to get a little smart. >> it's time to get smart. the earning season could be choppy. i think a lot of people are waiting for that. actually, that's a smart move. don't think you'll see much in the next probably three weeks that will motivate anybody in either direction very seriously. i would like to say i'm a little more positive about it. i think i might be in the minority on this, but i do think we'll probably see some surprises -- >> you got the earnings season right up against the elec
moved, not by what's going on here in the united states, but what's been going on in europe, which says to me two things. one, any bad news out of europe is going to send the market down. two, eventually people are going to have to pay attention to what's going on in the united states. i'm expecting we're heading into earnings season, i'm expecting anemic growth, and eventually that's going to have to play into the situation here. i mean, i know you don't fight the fed, but eventually we have to come back to what's going on in terms of fundamentals and stop focusing on monetary policy. >> what do you think? are we going to focus on fundamentals? if you are, kurt, would you be a seller of this market? >> we are focused in on fundamentals. i think this has been a tug of war between the reflationists and some of the risk that's been perceived in the market. we're not investing in gdp. we're investing in earnings. so far, earnings has held up. so far this year the stock market has been doing well. we'll focus on earnings. in terms of am i a buyer here, i'm taking selective positions because
those good things. so you can start ordering them on friday. it starts deliveries in the united states the following friday on the 21st. we'll have more on this coming up all day here. let's get to brian shactman with his market flash. >> thank you very much, bill. there is news out there outside of apple. i want to take a look at dole foods, the iconic brand now a smaller cap company just under $1 billion. right around 1:00, the nikkei reported. the headline and the subheader, they reported a japanese company was acquire two dole food units for $1.7 billion. the subhead says they hope to reach an agreement this month. the price spiked. the stock is up 10%. back to you. >> thank you so much, brian. if world investors are right, get ready for another intervention to boost the economy. >> mean time, we're going to talk about whether it's needed or not. peter says any fed action is not going to help and it's wrong. others say the economy needs it right now. let's talk about it and get your perspective on this. peter, you saw the employment numbers last friday. you don't think we need more
in the united states on food assistants? that's staggering. we have not produced a single net new job. there is a bridge that has to be gapped, and ceos want to see what plan and the path is. >> the fiscal cliff has a lot of ceos concerned, what about you? >> i think that's the number one concern. it's a 3% hit to incomes in gdp terms, and the economy only grows 2%. if that happens, and we won't know until after the election, it will wipe out job creation until next year. we're hoping and thinking it gets fixed, but we have to see the election and get into december. >> more things to worry about and think about in the meantime. >> pretty sobers. >> 37 minutes until the closing bell. the nasdaq is higher by 61. >> that is a four.5 year high for the s&p 500, is there more room to run? should you take profits? >>> new claims, president obama and john boehner had a massive blow up over the collapse of the debt deal last year. we're talking about a tirade from the president, can they possibly work together to fix our debt situation if both remain in power after november. >>> and don't mist
the unemployment problem here in the united states. >> yeah, i agree with you on that, bill, but i just want to make a point that i've heard a lot of politicians talk about unemployment. i've not heard any single person talk in a more impassioned way. you can agree or disagree with his prescription, but as far as i can tell, he's the only one in the political establishment doing anything about it. so i think that's an important thing. and that's one of the reasons why, you know, he feels -- he's pointing out that fed policy is not a panacea. he needs help from the fiscal side. >> how come we're not getting it, steve? is it just because washington is so broken? >> i think it's so broken, and i think no side is willing to give the other side any advantage whatsoever until the election clarifies. >> i think that's outrageous. i think that's outrageous, really. i do. >> but it's the reality we face right now. lance roberts, what strikes you about -- i mean, are you hopeful that the economy can get better as ben bernanke suggests, or are you more concerned about what the implications are for this
to be yet more liquidity coming into the system. probably both in universieurope united states. that keeps the action going. >> is that a good thing, don? what do you think about that? is it a good thing we're seeing such momentum in this market ahead of the fed policy, ahead of any of the policy coming out of any international central banks? >> what it does have is a very good effect from the standpoint of mr. obama because, although -- well, people say the unemployment number was terrible, so that's bad for obama. all the polls show that if the s&p 500 is doing really well, that the people out there tends to be more tolerant of some bad economic numbers. on the other hand, if the s&p is cratering and we're getting bad unemployment numbers, then that's good news for mr. romney. >> september and october typically are volatile periods for this market. some tough times right now. ron, one of the expectations is that the fed may add liquidity, but they may also extend the period of time that the fed will keep rates low for that period of time. maybe into 2015 is the expectation. is it a bit d
this kind of conversation around the country today on the basis of our tax situation in the united states, right? >> i think that's a very good thing, yeah. >> very healthy conversation. some, even though they're calling these comments a disaster for the romney campaign, others are not. donald trump, for one. he's what he told the gang on "squawk box." this morning. >> these statements that were very unfortunate, i guess. i don't think he should apologize. he's probably right. he probably won't get any of those votes, but he should not be apologizing. >> so is donald trump right? should romney just stand behind though comments? joining us to break it down is director of the tax policy center and our own rick santelli. rick, you agree with trump? >> i'm not going to agree or disagree with trump. my opinion is he stated basic facts, not an elegant fashion. sometimes the facts aren't easy to swallow. the issue here isn't about that sound bite. the issue here is about the media. we have a $16 trillion debt. we have a jobs program, or many jobs programs that haven't worked. we have a federal r
. number two, increased production from the united states, canada and the north sea, specifically norway. and number three, iraq. iraq has continued to increase their production. you know, they have as much reserves as iran, so they are the third or second -- tied for second in the world of reserves, and iraq has put in these offshore terminals, and they have been able to ramp up the exports. that is likely to put some downward pressure if there's no geopolitical blow up, maria. >> i was just going to see, weigh the geopolitical risk versus the spr noise and tell me where oil goes between now and the end of the year. >> well, we have 117 for the end of the year on brefnlt now our view is that the geopolitical noise is not likely to seriously dissipate, because there's no sign of progress in the iranian nuclear negotiations. there's no sign that the standoff will be eased any time soon, and without any easy off ramp, we don't see how this situation is resolved, so we think potentially 2013 you're really looking at a question of does iran get nuclear weapons capability, or do you take mili
